We promote the fun of bicycling through group rides, cycling advocacy, new-cyclist encouragement, social events, and the dissemination of safety and skills information. The Club has been active in north central West Virginia since 1979. For rail-trail bicycling, road bike riding, and mountain biking in West Virginia and beyond, Country Roads Cyclists is the Club to join!
We welcome adult cyclists and their families (beginners, old pros, casual or ambitious) for congenial bicycling activities including rides ranging from five miles to multi-day tours. Every year our members enjoy picnics and parties, as well as bicycling throughout the region. We have rides scheduled every Saturday and Sunday from March 1 to October 31. Each September we sponsor a Century Ride (100 miles). We also sometimes offer overnight trips and tours from several days to up to two weeks.
We belong to the League of American Bicyclists, International Mountain Biking Association, and several rail-trail advocacy groups. We coordinate our activities with other area bicycling clubs. Members receive our newsletter, published five or six times a year, which features our ride schedule as well as Club and area news.
